5:01 pm
it's national news and comment live from moscow this is r.t. with you twenty four hours a day and the a severely disrupted the u.s. presidential election campaign with rallies canceled and plans for early voting thrown into chaos the storm is fast approaching the u.s. east coast threatening over fifty million people. is in new york where thousands of flights are being canceled and the transport network has been shut down following mass evacuations. winds are picking up outside and throughout new york city those that are living aco search of the water are clearly in a bit more danger just an hour or so ago there was news and video of a crane hovering on a building on fifty seventh street that had broken and i it was dangling above the building the trains have stopped running the buses have stopped running the new york stock exchange has closed my day and through tuesday this is the first time that the new york stock exchange has been shut down
5:02 pm
a schedule shutdown since september two thousand and one essentially new york city is on lockdown three hundred seventy five thousand people had been encouraged to evacuate if they were living in zones that are close to the water or who wins and heavy rain will soon be hitting new york city in the coming hours and now when experts say it will become most dangerous for new york city the fear the fear is that if this water if this surge gets high enough lower manhattan can be completely flooded not mine on park avenue right in the belly of manhattan so i feel fairly safe this storm the winds are picking up and they're going to get up to ninety miles per hour i was a big concern before because there's scaffolding and there's material that's flying all over the streets and millions of people are now greece a part how are outages and we don't know what kind of effect that will have in that in the days to come and let's remember this election day is a week away u.s.
5:03 pm
president barack obama and his opponent mitt romney they both have suspended their campaigning events for a monday and tuesday president obama returned to washington d.c. he addressed the nation about the serious weather conditions told americans as this is a very. serious storm coming to the east coast and everyone should be taking the circum. very seriously now on the gallup poll what's interesting is that they have announced that they are suspending their daily election polling due to this hurricane hurricane sandy it's not clear when they will be good again but zandi is likely to accept early voting early voting as he quickly helps democrats but aides it will be affecting early voting along the eastern seaboard and flooding and power outages caused significant damage in several states states such as new york new
5:04 pm
jersey maryland connecticut so on and so forth high we don't know what the turnout will be like next week on election day well throughout the presidential race in the u.s. our t. has been looking at it from different perspectives including that of the occupy movement the race between a bomber has become the most expensive in the country's history with major corporations pouring billions into both camps and some occupy activists believe it's wall street which will ultimately win regardless of who's electable form or not joined by tom hayden he's well known for his role in the sixty's as an antiwar and civil rights activist no neither candidate has mentioned the famous ninety nine percent during the debates why. well first of all thank you for having me on i don't represent occupy wall street i would point out that wall street is underwater however. i think that the
5:05 pm
differences between the candidates are that obama is. a moderate but strongly in favor of regulation government regulation of the wall street economy and romney is the traditional republican who won the deregulation of the anti wall street movement has disappeared for the moment and i suppose we'll be back when the election is over and how would you advise them to proceed with that protest now you've been called the fog of the largest protests in american history what advice would you give them i know that you are not representing the occupy movement well it's one of the fights would you give them now. well the most urgent question before the american people and. the social movements is this election. to say that elections
5:06 pm
don't matter is i think a terrible mistake first of all the storm is a way that global warming and. the issue that has been ignored by both candidates is making its presence known and it's destroying the legitimacy of the election potentially on the east coast. i would suggest that people argue that the election should be postponed or made into a two or three day. event because of this disaster. secondly. we are in an extreme danger of a stolen election because when the difference between the candidates is fifty fifty when they're exactly even there are so many ways that the
5:07 pm
very politicized election officials the computerized program systems can be manipulated so this election should be protested already because of the storm and because of the danger of it being stolen i think it's very likely that they'll be lawsuits and long arguments after election day that's just in the next week or two wall street is a looming issue of course but we can wait until december for the wall street issue . and the green party of course would be very much behind the global warming issue and the number of issues of course represented by other third parties not being addressed by the mainstream do you think perhaps then we could see perhaps an impetus for the two party state now to the two party situation to be challenge and there could be a party emerging in the near future now. it's
5:08 pm
impossible to predict but american history would suggest that the answer is no that third parties play a very useful role and in some places. a very important role depending on the population but in general if you look at the difference between the democrats and republicans the radical difference is between the base of the two parties the. republican party is almost all white the democratic party is mixed ninety five percent of the african-american vote is for obama seventy five percent of the latino vote is for obama and so and so i i think the two parties have a significant difference between them in terms of their constituencies and i just want to end by finally confirming your your comments whereby you think this storm
5:09 pm
we're seeing now could actually have an impact on the election and you feel that is right then to delay the election. nobody is talking about delay in the election now but it has a devastating impact for example. early voting in is is is being wiped out in these cities and states the voting of the elderly on the election day the voting of the poor on election day. the the voting of new yorkers on election day is likely to be diminished through no fault of their own. and that will affect the outcome of the election but at the same time as you well know it's extremely possible to
5:10 pm
manipulate the computers so if it's a close election it will be protested and contested as illegitimate for days and days and into the future just as the election between gore and bush. was seen by most americans as stolen that could happen again so we are in for a an electoral crisis i think of a very very profound nature tom hayden activists a politician thank you so much for joining us live there from los angeles. well our coverage of the u.s. presidential campaign will continue on at and online all the way up to the don't miss the final round of the party candidates debate to hear about their take on the issues largely ignored by the front runners that's coming to you live exclusively on aunty just under a week. we both agree we agree we have to bring the tax rates down i felt the same as the president did governor romney i'm glad. you
5:11 pm
agree let's come back to something the president i agree on and there to be you agree that the voters have a choice perhaps you wonder who to vote for when romney and obama agree on so many things never you do have other options come november sixth tune in to see the second round of debates between the major third party candidates right here on our team. russia's foreign minister is urge all sides in the syria conflict to engage in dialogue that's after the muslim holiday truce proved ended in violence secular role of was speaking after the u.n. speech and point to syria the his visit to moscow here and also easy going to spin off his been following the talks in the russian capital. even though it was supposed to last just four days the ceasefire in syria didn't work and now the question on everybody's lips is what happens next and both russia's foreign minister lavrov and special envoy brahimi are placing their bets on the geneva
5:12 pm
communique which was signed by wall power seven obliges both sides of the conflict in syria to simultaneously put their weapons down and also for equal pressure to be applied on both of them from the outside but according to russia's foreign minister far from all countries which signed this agreement back in geneva are playing by the rules that i see in the in the relates to get us to russia is probably the only country along those that took part in the geneva talks on the thirtieth of june which negotiates regularly with all sides in the syrian conflict the government and all opposition groups with no exceptions because here we expect our western partners and partners in the region to do the same they should get used to the idea that without dialogue with the syrian government virtually nothing can be achieved and this is currently a major problem in moving towards a political process in syria internal special envoy brahimi said he is sorry that the ceasefire plan didn't work it was negotiated to take place during the course of the feast of sacrifice was supposed to end today but was in fact broken right on
5:13 pm
the first day with a deadly blast in damascus then violence continued in different parts of the country throughout the weekend and was told by another deadly explosion in damascus on monday and russia's foreign minister says that with these provocations taking place the syrian government is also making disproportionate responses so mr brahimi is facing a very tough task of finding some sort of a diplomatic solution and more importantly making it work he himself says that you know level of distrust between the two sides of the coptic in syria is so high right now it won't even when they begin discussing some sort of obligations each one expects automatically the other one to break its promises. well still ahead here this hour here on our team there's more pain a head for hauled out greaves death and struggles to pass reforms it needs to get another casualty action its creditors are planning to request people more sacrifices that still to come this hour on oxy after

5:18 pm
accept the fact that you lose sovereignty. or you will have major problems in terms of the continuity of this monetary union so if you need money if you're in difficult to like greece is it in a vital mode that those many of the money starts interfering with your policies so it may sound a little brutal or maybe a little bit undemocratic but that's the way things work if you really are in need of that much money for that long period of time it's invite them over to give up some of your sovereignity and as a matter of fact to make this monitoring union work structural and durable way every state involved in this mural in this monetary union will have to accept this principle. the greek government has been accused of failing to go after tax dodges a journalist who published a least
5:19 pm
a list of the country's political and business elite who have swiss bank accounts now faces trial after being arrested there was a blow says the list that matches the data given to the greek authorities two years ago by the then french finance minister christine legarde oh no names are being investigated as greek officials say the information was obtained illegally legal expert george gardner so i spoke to him a little earlier on r.t. he says the list could have been used to track down tax evaders. the baby would not use it at the court exactly because it was not legal. but the investigating these leaps from the glick that so i think exist only by the only who's in. it to know that that's on the list that is published in this material is still going after these suspects getting lots of tax evasion they are going after that list it would be. a good deal of difference is it going to be the sentiment of

wreckage or the missing crew. no thanks that's the reaction of residents in london to europe's largest mosque being planned for their backyard next to the olympic site as artie's probably boyko found out it's not only the sheer size but the islamic group developing it but they're worried about. four times bigger than some paul's cathedral a mega mosque that will fit ten thousand people and it could be coming to london's east end if it gets the go ahead it's built the river in center will be the same size as london's looming but as a power station it would also be the biggest place of worship in the u.k. of any religion but critics have slammed the proposal saying that it would create a muslim cancer in the forces that are still working to bring the largest mosque the u.k. has ever seen into reality revered architects planning consultants and glitzy

a center of training in which to reach out to islam are these muslims to harden up and mediƦval lives. of ordinary muslims in this country and i mean so many muslims don't want that the problem here. is that muslims themselves are opposing this mosque more on the grounds that they don't want to worship their god but on the grounds that women aren't allowed the local population of muslim population has no on the side in how the mosque itself is governed or the local authority would say to us as you can confirm we have received a planning application as this is currently being it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage the matter is if this went ahead if you like a tipping point. that big no stopping fundamentalist islam if this one goes up well if that happens we all need to leave the country for the last one out please turn the lights off while the council ponders campaign as head of the religions say they
